  • Faster, Safer, Hands-Free DNA Purification from FFPE Samples

    The Maxwell® 16 FFPE Plus LEV DNA Purification Kit is used to extract DNA rapidly from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples using the Maxwell® 16 Instrument. The kit is designed for optimal purification of DNA from one to ten 5um thin sections of FFPE tissue samples, maximizing yield and eliminating the need to concentrate the extract prior to amplification.

    Time-Saving Protocol Options for Efficient Processing

    The protocol provides overnight and 1-hour options for proteinase K digestion of samples prior to DNA purification. After proteinase K digestion, tissue lysates are placed directly into the FFPE Kit cartridges and amplification-ready genomic DNA is obtained in approximately 30 minutes. The Maxwell® 16 Instrument processes 1–16  cartridges per run. The kit does not use hazardous xylene, providing a much safer method than other FFPE purification products. Quality testing demonstrates virtually no PCR inhibitors in purified samples.

    Maxwell® Cartridge Seal Change

    The seal length on Maxwell® Cartridges has changed to create a pull-tab feature. The manufacturing procedures and quality-control testing of products have not changed.
